I searched the forum thinking this must have been covered somewhere, if it was I couldn't find it. I switched last year to a 14T front sprocket shortly after buying my XR650l, but although my chain was relatively new, I'm almost out of adjustment in terms of the markings for the sock setup. I appreciate the markings are to indicate the wear limit for the stock setup, but it felt to me that lengthening the wheelbase made the steering heavier - could just be me. My question is if the stock chain is 110 links would 108 links work with a 14/45 setup, and is it normal for a 14T to result in so much of the adjustment being taken up, or is my chain more stretched than I assume. The bike only has 2,500 miles on it ,I bought it at 1300 miles and had not been used hard at all.
